  1. Hi, My spouse (beneficiary) has a visa overstay (initially came here on a tourist visa, ) she has worked (under the table and paid cash) here and there I might be overthinking it but on form I-485, Part 8. Questions 16 & 17 (worked in the United states w/o authorization & violating terms of noninmigrant status) I would select yes for both? And of course put where she worked for the past 5 years.
  2. Hello guys. I am here to help my friend who's been staying here for no valid visa and her passport will gonna expire soon. My question is how she will gonna renew her Philippine passport here in the United States? or is she allowed to renew it even though she doesn't have any valid papers? Thank you for the Answers..
  3. Hi! I'm so sorry if this is in the wrong spot, I wasn't sure where else to put it! I received my notice to appear because of an overstay a few months back. My master calendar hearing was meant to be in February but was pushed back to August. I haven't gotten any further information regarding whether or not COVID has affected that date, which is mid-August, so I have not yet seen a judge. Unfortunately, due to COVID, I am on furlough from my job, and due to my overstay of more than one year, I am not eligible for unemployment, nor can I find another job. I came down on a K1 visa but my husband and I are now separated, so there is little reason for me to stay in the US. I'm already aware of the 10-year ban that I will face, but with little to no income, I have very few options left, and am planning to leave the US and return home to Canada in the coming weeks. I still want to follow the proper channels for doing so. I'm trying to figure out how to contact DHS to let them know that I want to apply for voluntary departure/that I'm leaving the country prior to the date of my hearing, but I can't seem to find any useful information online for how to apply for it without seeing the judge first. I will not be able to afford rent in August, so staying until my mid-August court date is out of the question! If anyone has applied for voluntary departure before their hearing before, how did you do it?
  4. Hello, I am Lithuanian citizen (EU) visiting U.S. on ESTA (VWP) visa. Me and my girlfriend (also Lithuanian) decided we want to get married and live in U.S. She is currently green card holder (permanent resident) for 2 years living in U.S. We know each other for more than five year and were having an open relationship during this time. My ESTA visa expires on August 19, 2020. I am currently with her in California. I am wondering what would be the best way with least consequences to stay together in US and eventually become permanent resident and then citizen of US and if that (marying while overstaying visa) is considered a dificult case. I am thinking about signing up with Boundless or SimpleCitizen and buying their service. I am not sure if I need to hire a lawyer... Any Help Appreciated!
  5. Hi, my husband is a LPR (through work) and now eligible for naturalization. The problem is I was denied the extension of my O-1 and currently overstay. What should he put in the form N-400 part 10 Information about your Marital History - 7.C Current Spouse's Immigration Status. We think we should be honest but I don't want that part to jeopardize his process including me. Thank you so much in advance for your answers.
  6. Hello there, I am a US Citizen, my husband was a student in the US with an F1 visa, he overstayed his visa about 4 years and went back to his country willingly without any deportation process. We got married in his country and living together since last year. We are planning on applying for IR1/CR1 visa and move back to the US. My question is; will he be subject to 10 year ban due to his overstay even though his I-94 had D/S without a specific time on it? We have been researching and seen many different scenarios from people that have been through exactly the same situations, some of them got their visa without a problem, but some others got denied due to overstay. We would appreciate if you could enlighten us.
  7. Does anyone have experience with being an over-stay and then having it forgiven through marriage?
  8. Hello. How hard is it get the I-601A approved? Also, if approved. How long does the beneficiary have to stay in the foreign country of their Citizenship? Is it a guarantee return trip to USA after Interview? What happens if the return trip is denied?
  9. I spoke with a lawyer today and he mentioned something that I had never heard before. He said that when one marries a US citizen, not all visa overstays are forgiven. Just the most recent. For example, if you overstayed 5 years ago but were not discovered, then overstayed right before filing a marriage AOS only the second overstay will be forgiven and the 5 year old one will still trigger a ban. Anyone else ever heard of this?
